Build/Test Tools: Make the install testing workflow more flexible.

In [56661], a new GitHub Actions workflow was introduced that focused on running some minimal installation tests for a version of WordPress for every PHP and MySQL combination.

This workflow has tested well, but lacks flexibility and possesses one flaw: tests are only ever performed with currently supported versions, even if the version being tested had a different support policy.

This updates the workflow to be more flexible, allowing all versions of WordPress currently receiving security fixes (back through 4.1) to be tested under the correct support policy.

Additionally, the workflow can now run against the nightly build of WordPress. This replaces latest as the new default. This allows the tests to be run at any point during a release cycle without the need for an officially tagged version.
